Private Internet Access VPN Review

By tracy
As its antiquated app icon and the stock image on its website indicate, Private Internet Access has been covering people’s tracks on the internet since 2010. Based in the U.S. but bought by London-based Kape Technologies in late 2019, Private Internet Access offers a pile of internet privacy and security features at a low price.

Marvel’s Cancelled New Warriors Show Would Have Featured a Live-Action M.O.D.O.K.

Before Marvel Television officially folded into Marvel Studios last October — effectively ending Marvel TV’s run that began with Agents of SHIELD and included the likes of Agent Carter, Runaways, Cloak & Dagger, and the Netflix Defenders-verse, as the company shifted gears and looked to Marvel Studios to make streaming shows for Disney+ that would be a part of Phase 4 (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, etc) — there were still a few Marvel shows in the pipeline.One series from the slate — which also included a Ghost Rider series and animated shows for Howard the Duck and Tigra & Dazzler — was a live-action New Warriors series for Freeform, which was to feature Milana Vayntrub as the beloved cult character Squirrel Girl.

Kevin Biegel (Scrubs, Enlisted), who was briefly the showrunner for the now defunct New Warriors series, took to Twitter today to lament the fact that, had the series gone on long enough, Keith David’s character would have transformed into a live-action version of A.I.M.’s giant-headed scientist supreme, M.O.D.O.K (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing).
